2016 Bream Creek Pinot Noir

2016 Bream Creek Pinot Noir

Fresh, lively and light, with ample plum, pomegranate and spiced raspberry richness. The oaking is so discreet as to be invisible as a clear aromatic note, merely helping to round out the wine's aromatic profile and soften the fruit contours a little.'

DESCRIPTION
  • Brand new release. Brand new label and a brand spanking new award to go with it. The freshly released 2016 Bream Creek Pinot Noir follows in a long line of great vintages of this wine and has already hit the ground running with a massive Trophy for the Best Pinot in Show at the Decanter World Wine Awards Asia (amassing 97 points along the way). This is a dark, massive Pinot, the likes of which you might find in Pommard or Gevrey and just makes you realise how far $35 can go with Australian Pinot. 

    It caps off a big season for Bream Creek, with winemaker and viticulturist Fred Peacock recently being awarded the 2018 Viticulturist of the Year award from Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine. Well done.

    Pinot Noir is the most common red grape grown in Tasmania, and has an enviable reputation in Australia and increasingly the world for producing wines that rival the best from Burgundy.

    Bream Creek Vineyard produces premium wines from Tasmania’s pristine cool climate and has been rewarded with over 20 trophies and more than 470 show medals since 1990. Our 7.5ha vineyard at Marion Bay in the south-east of Tasmania was originally planted in 1974, making it one of the oldest commercial vineyards on the island. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The Bream Creek vineyard was planted in 1990 by Fred Peacock. It has long been considered one of the very best sites and vineyards in Eastern Tasmania. Fred’s wines are concentrated and long, thanks to the mature vines and low yields.

    TASTING NOTES

    Vintage 2016 was simply spectacular in Tasmania. Ideal growing conditions provided the perfect platform to grow fruit that was of excellent quality, with
    perfect balance between flavour and physiological ripeness. This cool climate Pinot Noir has a generous cherry and spice nose and an intense palate of dark and red cherries, blue fruits and hints of raspberry, supported by fine grained tannins. Enjoyable now, this wine may also be confidentially cellared.

  • REVIEWS

    'This 2016 Tasmanian Pinot Noir is a clear deep red in colour. The aromas are fresh, lively and light, with ample plum, pomegranate and spiced raspberry richness. The oaking is so discreet as to be invisible as a clear aromatic note, merely helping to round out the wine's aromatic profile and soften the fruit contours a little. On the palate, the wine is lively, juicy, exuberant and long, the fruits bubbling and cascading through the mouth to a soft, gentle end. Acidity is a more prominent component here than tannins, which are very gentle, but the acidity itself is ripe and well-rounded, perfectly bonded to the fruits. Drink 2018-2026.'
